Matthew is an ecumenical at heart and as a Southern Baptist seeks to reach out to groups who are often at odds theologically with one another as he demonstrates in this work. His favorite verse and the one that unites all believers is Romans 10:9, “if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (NIV)
